Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride Guides and Walkthroughs

Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride is a role-playing video game and the fifth installment in the Dragon Quest video game series, second of the Zenithian Trilogy. Originally developed by Chunsoft and then published by Enix Corporation, Dragon Quest V was the first title in the series to be released for the Nintendo Super Famicom (SFC aka SNES) video game console in Japan in September 1992. Dragon Quest V was the first game in the series to not be released outside of Japan due to programming issues that plagued the industry at the time.

Dragon Quest V uses basic role-playing video game mechanics seen in the rest of the series, which includes leveling up by gaining experience points through battle, first-person turn-based battles, and equipping weapons and armor. Something new to the Dragon Quest series is the ability to tame monsters into the player's party. The monsters can be used in battle and level up like the human characters. Monsters sometimes request to join the Hero after battles if the party is strong enough. There are a total of 40 monsters that are capable of joining the Hero's party in the Super Famicom version, with 71 in the PlayStation 2 remake.

Side Quest Guides

King Dominicus Mini Medal Collector

There are technically only two side quests in Dragon Quest V, the Knick-Knackatory as well as the Mini Medals side quest. You can begin both of these after obtaining the boat early on in the game and both of these locations become Zoom locations once visited.

Metal Slime Farming Location & Guide

Metal King Slime Dragon Quest 5

When it comes to grinding monsters and farming in Dragon Quest games there is nothing better than Metal Slimes. Anyone familiar with the Dragon Quest series will know all about these enemies as they're a reoccuring theme in all of them. Basically, Metal Slimes are exceptionally rare and difficult to kill but they give 10x more EXP (roughly) than any other monsters.
